Greetings Oakman families,
We hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing long weekend. This week marks the beginning of our virtual learning using Zoom and Schoology. Last week, materials were passed out to all our students. Please be sure to review these with your child and keep them stored in a safe place.
Tomorrow, all classroom teachers will hold a Zoom meeting with their students at 8:55am.
Students will need to log onto Schoology to join the Zoom meeting each day.
Please help your child log onto schoology and Zoom a few minutes before 8:55am so that they are ready. Also be sure to subscribe to your teacher’s blogs for updates.
As we navigate these new learning portals, please understand that our teachers are also learning and adapting to new ways of teaching. We are asking for your patience and support throughout this time as we work together and support our students!
Due to the weather, we will be having orientation indoors. If you have an appointment today please note which door to come through.
1st Grade: Door #12
2nd Grade: Door #12
3rd Grade: Cafeteria Door #10
4th Grade: Cafeteria Door #10
5th Grade: Cafeteria Door #10
We look forward to seeing you!
If you are still in need of a chromebook for your child, please email their classroom teacher and let them know today.
We will have a limited number of chromebooks tomorrow (Tuesday Sept. 1st) by door number 10 (cafeteria door) starting at 9:00am. One chrome per student as quantities last.
Since we will starting the school year virtually one of the best forms of communication will be email. All students have an email address. It is your child’s 8 digit student number followed by @dearbornschools.org. The password is usually the child’s birthdate (MMDDYYYY) unless they changed it.
Please keep in mind when signing in to clever you’ll need to type in your complete email address which includes @dearbornschools.org.
Hello Oakman Lions,
Welcome back to school! The first day of school is tomorrow Monday, August 31st, 2020. As you know, school will be virtual. But the first week of school is a soft start which means everyday this week is a half day. During soft start, teachers will be scheduling one on one orientation.
Due to late staff realignment, you should expect to receive a phone call or email from your child’s teacher either today or tomorrow. Please dont panic if you haven’t received a call yet. Some families may have already received a phone and some may have not. Please note teachers will be reaching out and scheduling one on one appointments. Some families will have appointment times on Monday, some will have times on Tuesday and so on. Again, please dont panic! Please know we are working the best we can to give you information as we receive it. We appreciate your patience.
Teachers will be scheduling appointment times for outdoor orientation. During your orientation time, you will receive learning materials for the new school year. Orientation will take place on the small playground and parking lot. Please keep an eye out for a phone call or an email from your child’s teacher. Also, please continue to check the school blog and your teachers blog for more information.
Chromebook distribution will begin tomorrow Monday, August 31st, 2020 starting at 9:00. The chromes will be distributed by the cafeteria door number 10. No appointment is needed. One chrome per student as quantities last.
Please come to meet your teacher only with an appointment. We must follow safety protocols. Parents and students must wear a mask. We look forward to having a great school year!
Students and Parents will be using Schoology as the place to start. Students can log in being Monday morning. (Parent accounts will be coming soon). Students should log in using their Google Accounts. Students who have borrowed a Chromebook from the district should have two tabs load upon sign-in: the district student portal web page and their Schoology page.
